Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Nostalgic

Hello, all! I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

This week’s photo challenge comes from Tina. She has encouraged us to depict something that evokes nostalgia. For my offering, I have chosen to highlight a few photos taken at Lauriston Castle in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Last November, I wrote a post showcasing the beautiful Edwardian interior of Lauriston Castle and also included a little bit about its history. If you are interested in taking a look, you can get to it by clicking here. The photos from that post are in color, but for today’s purposes, I have had a little fun transforming a few of those photos into a more vintage look.

The castle was left to the city of Edinburgh upon the death of its last owner, Mrs. Reid, in 1926, and the interior remains today exactly as it was on the day she passed. I hope these photos evoke a sense of nostalgia and give life to how Lauriston would have looked in photos in Mrs. Reid’s day.
